BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:30 P.M.) – Minutes ago, the Turkish Army began heavily shelling the Kurdish-led People’s Protection Units (YPG) in the northern countryside of the Aleppo Governorate.

According to the nearby Syrian Arab Army (SAA), the Turkish military has been heavily shelling the YPG’s positions at the town of Tal Rifa’at.

The Syrian Arab Army said they are on high alert now because the Turkish Army shells were landing near their positions in the Tal Rifa’at countryside.
